We have a premiere date for CBC’s new adaptation of Anne of Green Gables…and also a teaser trailer which will hopefully help all of those Meghan Follows 1980’s version purists just relax a little. 

The show, which will start airing on CBC on March 19, breaks down the story of Canada’s most beloved redhead into a two hour premiere special followed by six x one hour episodes. Based on this teaser trailer (see below) it looks like the Ceebs (in partnership with Netflix, who’ll also be streaming the show) is giving L.M. Montgomery’s classic tale the lush, dramatic “mini-series” treatment it’s long deserved.
